Working Out Of Your Home

Working Out Of Your Home

Have you ever wondered whether or not you
need a branch-office license to work out of your home?

An article in Texas Realtor magazine answers that question:
“It depends on the activities the agent performs in their homes. Section 1101.552 of the Real Estate License Act provides that if a broker maintains more than one place of business, the broker must obtain a branch-office license for each additional office besides the brokers main office.  TREC rule Section 535.112 defines a "place of business" as a place where the licensee meets with clients and customers to transact business. If an agent meets with clients or customers at the agent's home to transact business, then the broker should obtain a branch-office license for that home. Conversely, if the agent never meets with a client or customer at the agent's home to transact business, then no branch-office license would be required”.
